WHISPERED FROM THE SEA
Exercise With Bobi Becker
MAJESTIC RECORDS 1060 1970s STEREO
"Age is but a shell within which lies the gem of reality....the jewel of youth"
THIS IS AN EXERCISE ALBUM. It is unique in that it encompasses 36 minutes of continuous exercise and music from Hard Rock to Classical and from Jogging to Yoga. We must be prepared to meet challenge and change within us and within our society. Physical exercise is one of the answers. It is necessary, it is discipline, it can be fun, it can be quiet, it can be exciting, it can and must be..met with enthusiasm. JOIN ME WON'T YOU? NARRATION OF EXERCISES BY BOBI BECKER

Editor's note: oh, Bobi, did you have to go and set all of our hearts ablaze with your envigored leap and philosophical soliloquy? No, you didn't have to but you did out of the kindness of your heart and we thank you. Otherwise we'd still be on the couch licking the orange skein of Dorito cheese from our fingers.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
